A missing man has been found inside a seven-metre-long python in a remote Indonesian village on the island of west Sulawesi.
The body of the 25-year-old Akbar Salubiro was found in the giant snake’s belly when it was cut.
Neighbours reported cries from the palm grove the night Mr Salubiro went missing, but it wasn’t until the next day when their fears were confirmed.
A spokesman for police in West Sulawesi said.
It is believed Mr Salubiro was swallowed alive after he left his home to harvest palm oil.
But he didn’t get far.
When his family became concerned over the missing man’s whereabouts, they spotted the python in Mr Salubiro’s backyard looking a little, well, full.
They found the stodged python sprawled out in Akbar’s own back garden on Monday night at 10pm — and feared he had been suffocated and swallowed.
His body, still intact, was discovered inside the snake after residents sliced open its belly.
The victim was brought out lifeless, News in Colour stated,
As the snake’s body is sliced open, it reveals more and more of the missing man, still clothed.
